FARGO, N.D. (AP) — A former assistant bank manager faces charges that she stole more than $4,000 from a customer's accounts.

The Fargo Forum reports (http://bit.ly/JLne82 ) that Becky Ann Sorum could face up to five years in prison and a $5,000 fine if she's convicted of the Class C felony theft charge filed Friday in Cass County District Court.

The 26-year-old Sorum had worked at Bank of the West in Fargo since April 2009. Court records say she's accused of making nine withdrawals totaling $4,200 from two separate accounts belonging to the same customer. The thefts allegedly occurred between December and March 5.

The newspaper reports that Sorum denied the allegation to in-house investigators, blaming the withdrawals on a faulty scanner. She resigned before a scheduled follow-up interview. Attempts to reach Sorum were unsuccessful.
